"Oh, the sentence! The shuddering, sinuous, piquant, incandescent, delicate, delirious, sulking, strident possibilities of it all!" -Constance Hale (from Sin and Syntax: how to craft wickedly good prose)
Writing Workshop Mondays
This year, Mondays will be devoted to a writing workshop. This approach to explicit writing instruction will help mold your specific style and your individual needs to create strong, effective writing. We will be using a text by Constance Hale, entitled Sin and Syntax: how to craft wickedly effective prose, as our core resource. Within this writing workshop, we will focus on various types of essay writing: the college essay, creative writing, non-fiction and imaginative writing, and preparing for the SAT. It is my goal to prepare you for the rigorous requirements that you will face in the Composition courses that you will encounter during your freshman year in college.
